Before being allocated a garage there is some important information that you need to know. Listed below are some key facts:
- The Council has a fairly large waiting list for those wanting to rent a garage.
- Anyone wanting a garage will need to fill out an application form in order to go on this waiting list.
- Council tenants take priority over non-council tenants in areas where garages have been demolished (for example: Town Farm and Southmead Close).
- People who have had their garage demolished will take priority over anyone on the list.
- Garages cost £9.50 per week to rent, but non-council tenants have to pay £9.50 plus VAT (at the current rate).
- We will make sure a garage is in reasonable condition before letting it.
- The Council will only replace garage doors if they are in poor condition.
- Garage rent is NOT eligible for housing benefit.
- The garage licence is a weekly licence, so either party must give a weeks notice to end the agreement.
